Hillstone Networks, a global provider of network security solutions, has announced that its virtual firewall solution, Hillstone CloudEdge – based on their “next-generation” Firewall (NGFW) technology, is now available on Microsoft Azure Marketplace in standard and advanced editions.
Hillstone Networks’ CloudEdge would be an ideal solution for protecting virtual networks that are more susceptible to threats. In addition to the robust network security services common to Hillstone’s hardware-based NGFW, CloudEdge would offer the following benefits:
- North-South Traffic Inspection – to provide the VPC network with dedicated security isolation via policy control, as well as granular access control, QoS, VPN, IPS and server load balancing to guarantee business continuity.
- Secures Data Transmission via VPN – to protect data transmission between VPCs or VPCs to their associated enterprise networks.
- Simplified Deployment and Management – since it is fully integrated with Cloud Management Platforms (CMPs), administrators can launch, stop and configure firewall policies from the CMP itself; administrators can also configure CloudEdge directly via SecureShell (SSH).
Azure Marketplace offers integrated tools, pre-built templates and managed services to make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web and Internet of Things (IoT) applications faster and more efficiently. The Hillstone virtual solution would integrate with multiple security services, including firewall security, application identification and threat protection, to ensure security for cloud deployments.
“We are delighted to see Hillstone CloudEdge offered in Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace,” said Lingling Zhang, Vice President of Product & Marketing at Hillstone Networks. “Security is the number one concern for cloud deployment today. With CloudEdge, customers can secure their cloud access as well as the connection between different cloud sites.”
Hillstone CloudEdge is now available on the largest cloud service providers, including Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) and AliCloud.
